Today we drove through three states bringing to total to lucky thirteen!
And, while we cruised through New Jersey we had the chance to visit with Justin, Calie and the boys at Calie’s booth at a local street fair! And, to top it off, my daughter Jennifer had flown in that day to visit Justin and Calie! Family visit!!
Couldn’t find the “Welcome to Delaware” sign, so this will have to do.
One of my dreams ever since reading “Misty of Chincoteague” as a little girl was to visit the island and see the horses. Well, today we did just that!
We drove from South Carolina to Maryland today adding three more states for a total of ten.
We headed north out of the Miami area (some bad traffic!) to South Carolina in one day (total seven states now).
We were on the interstate this time, so got to see the better Georgia sign!
Welcome to South Carolina
We left the ranch early this morning and started on the “vacation” portion of our trip! First, we headed south through the everglades and down to Key West and then back to our hotel in Homestead, FL (just south of Miami).
At Lake Okeechobee
A1A (think Jimmy Buffet song!)
At Key West!
We were not impressed with the Keys!
Fishing off the pier
Saw this little guy off the pier.
Saw some tall ships in the far distance.
We enjoyed this beautiful sunrise and moon set in the humidity/fog this morning!
Here’s Mr. Gator much more clearly! I learned to just leave my camera in the un-air-conditioned porch so it won’t fog up when we go out in the 99.99% humidity (and we thought it was humid in Missouri!).
While at a ranch in Florida we found two predators!
Hard to see the gator because my lens was fogged up from the extreme humidity!
Monster spider with his catch of the day!
Today we moved on to Florida (sixth state of the trip) for a day off and then another on-farm consultation visit!
We drove the last few miles to our consulting gig and will spend the next few days in SW Georgia (fifth state of the trip).
Cool trees in the river!
